Meh, this appears to be LEOs flying armed, which happens all the time at (I would venture) every TSA operated checkpoint. The accompanying statement by the TSA says it all:
The video depicts individuals following correct procedures established for select groups, including state, local and federal law enforcement officers and federal flight deck officers. The video clearly shows the individuals interacting with the seated TSA officer and then verifying their identity and completing the process with a second TSA officer before proceeding to the law enforcement podium in the checkpoint. Had these individuals not been authorized to enter at this location, they would have been turned away by our officers. This well-established process can be observed at hundreds of airports across the country on any given day.
Unless, of course, those "officers" had been bribed, as many other TSA clerks have been.
But how could you know they were LEO? You guys tell us that the evil doers always can pretend to be anything, like pilots, flight attendants, pretend to be disabled and fake doctor's nots and prescriptions, so they could pretend to be LEOs too....or is that the one certain thing the evil doers will refuse to fake?
Flying LEOs are identified by their credentials and the NLETS (National Law Enforcement Telecommunications System). This identifies the individual and other information that helps to verify the individual as well. You can read the process here:
By the same morons who have trouble with a NEXUS card.
Gee. I feel safer already.
I see, a process that is 100,000.001% air-tight, no chance in hades, absolute fool proof, and so confidently secure that not a thing can ever be overlooked, missed, and nothing could every, every be faked, bribed, the one sure thing in this infinite universe that would positively go wrong.
